Amazing service and very spacious and modern rooms. Staff were very nice. Facilities were also very good, I used the gym multiple times. Really enjoyed the breakfast as well, I am vegetarian and there were enough options for me to eat.

The Capital Empire was just what we needed to rest and recover after a fairly stressful time with my husband having to have emergency surgery whilst on holiday due to a hiking accident. We were looked after so well by Bonolo and Gladness on reception who were warm and welcoming and whose assistance went beyond our needs. Lucky and Victor in the bar / restaurant greeted us by name each day and were always happy, laughing and lifting our spirits! Bridgette in housekeeping created a spotlessly clean haven for us! I can not fault this hotel! It is in a super location, just a 500m walk to the entrance of Sandton City Mall, it also has a gym, spa and outdoor pool! The food was excellent, with heaps of variety. Highly recommend for business, leisure or family! We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment rooms 201 and 202.

Stayed for a number of weeks with the entire family (2 adults & 3 kids) and we all had a fantastic time! We had two very comfortable inter-leading bedrooms connecting to a large, modern and well equipped lounge, dining area and kitchen (Washing machine & tumble dryer). The 1st floor garden was fun for the kids to be outside and was just off the really great gym. Made for convenient workouts while the kids got to play and still be in sight. We walked and rode bikes to Sandton City quite a bit (Slide into Hamley's and fountain at the Nelson Square were the kids highlights). Along with the incredibly friendly and welcoming staff at the hotel, the overall feeling of complete security, delicious breakfasts, coffees and the odd late night drinks at the bar were our highlights! Looking forward to visiting again!

Rooms were neat, clean and super comfortable. Staff were very welcoming, attentive and friendly - always ensuring comfort during our stay. Location is also close by to all Sandton amenities which is a huge plus. Would highly recommend this hotel for business travelers or anyone just wanting to get away for a bit.

We had our quarterly conference at The Capital Empire and I was totally blown away by the staff and overall experience. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of for the day. The food was also amazing. Would highly recommend for an event or business conference.

I’d definitely not come back as I’ve had a terrible stay from room service to food offered by their restaurant was horrible. No peaceful sleep ,lots of noise in the morning and at night. Apparently there was a conference that ran to midnight during our stay.
